product in 2008 to 78.2% of gdp, in 2014. under obama's budget, by 2020, the national debt ceiling will exceed $25 trillion. >>> question. is this budget the basis for serious negotiations with the republican leadership? or is it a political ploy? pat buchanan? >> no i think he did throw out a card john with the social security chain cpi. but i don't think it will go anywhere for this reason. the president has tax increases in there the republican house simply cannot abide and go home and survive. he is not going to get those tax increases. secondly, this chain cpi, already has a fire storm inside the democratic party against him for going after social security and medicare. so i think he put this out here. but john the real long-term problem medicare, medicaid social security eat up more and more and more of the budget. you mentioned defense and discretionary spending go down less and less and less. and i think it is, you know, this is no new deal or no new frontier or no great society. it is a timid budget, i think. and it is a grim budget for the united states. >>> the cpi is th
